Accurate measurement of permeability is critical for fluid flow modeling in porous media. Various experimental methods devised to measure permeability as a porous material property in composites are reviewed. Liquid flow and gas flow methods of permeability measurement for in-plane and transverse directions specifically for fiber-reinforced composites are discussed, as well as issues related to these methods and some associated permeability models. Alternative methods of permeability determination based on cross transport phenomenon are reviewed as well.
